It's the OP. Thanks for checking out my thread. Back to answer some questions.
I did the retreat this past summer
I took very little food(oranges/apples, nuts/grains) and only ate small amounts at night before sleep. I've fasted before, so getting to a point of
getting used to not eating til night, wasn't too bad besides the first 2-3 days.
The Flow/Being, was an actual insight, experience, vision type of deal that hasn't left me since then. Everything Is (capital I) and this Isness is
alive, flows, through everything.
At a certain point, tree's had auras. I thought it might be due to the fasting, but then I noticed some tree's that had cancerous knots, or the dead
tree's, did not have aura's to them, which makes me wonder if it was legit.
The Jesus thing. I'm not comparing myself to him, but wanted to follow in his footsteps of being in the wilderness to see what would happen. I knew
it would be tough, and that first few days were. I think the 21 days gave me better insight into the mind of Jesus.
Since I left there, I have kept with me many of the insights and realizations gained there. Most notably, I'm fine where-ever I am, but prefer
solitude and quiet places as they are conducive to going within.
I've actually met a married woman, through mutual friends who heard about my 21 days, and she takes off a month each year and drives down to the
Grand Canyon from the midwest, and camps out by herself for a month of meditation solo solitude retreat. She's told me that if she didn't do it, she
would have gone crazy by now
Anyway, I'll try to answer more questions when I get the chance.
Thanks guys for checking out the thread, I highly appreciate and look forward to actually going out for 40 days. Hope to make it happen sometime in
the next year or so
